I don’t like to deal in rumors. But then, on the other hand, I also know there are so many rumors flying which aren’t being outlined clearly. So if you are feeling like you are missing something, read this post so I can fill you in.Continue reading

Pagglait Review (SPOILERS!): A Woman Empowers Herself By Becoming a Man?
I don’t love this movie. Be warned! I also don’t hate it. So this won’t be one of those fun reviews where I get mean. This will be more of a “huh, why didn’t it work for me?” boring review.Continue reading
Pagglait Review (No Spoilers): Somehow This Doesn’t Quite Come Together?
I watched this because y’all told me it was good, and I was curious anyway. And then, I don’t know, it just didn’t work for me.Continue reading

Ludo Review (No SPOILERS): A Movie About Love and Happiness
Yaaaaay! A good happy movie! If you want a film that is satisfyingly well-made, and has a nice happy love and kindness message, you should watch this! I was very worried, because it is the kind of film that can suddenly turn dark and angry without warning (like, Super Deluxe). But no! I can report that it stays in the zone of “the world is ultimately just and people care for each other”.Continue reading
Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me on Hema Malini’s Birthday Week?
Happy Monday! I feel vaguely draggy and not awake, because the stupid sun wasn’t up at 6:30am when I woke up. Stupid sun.Continue reading
Shakuntala Devi Homosexuality Discussion Space
This is only a small part of the movie, but it is a big part of my reaction to the movie, if that makes sense. I didn’t want to have it overwhelm the review and be unfair to the film as a whole, so I am isolating the discussion all by itself over here.Continue reading
Shakuntala Devi Review (SPOILERS): Non-Conventional Woman Made Conventional Film Character
Well, this was a dull movie. And historically inaccurate, mostly in your usual gender normative/casteism/classism way. But also a really WEIRD homophobic thing. Just like, SO ODD. So odd that I am going to give it it’s own post for us to discuss, so look forward to that! (homosexuality post up now, go here to learn more about and discuss that aspect)Continue reading
Shakuntala Devi Review (No Spoilers): A Biopic That Manages To Be Both Inaccurate and Boring
Well, this is a BORING movie! At least ridiculous Mahanati had some nice crazy melodrama in it, and ridiculous Padman had the fun invented Sonam Kapoor character, and ridiculous Rustom had uniforms. This is bad BAD history, bad BAD filmmaking, and also DULL. Blech. I’ll put it this way, only watch it if you enjoy Vidya so much you would be happy seeing her recite the phone book. Because this script is only slightly more exciting than that. Oh wait, I always like to be positive, so I should have something else to add…it’s better than Mission Mangal?Continue reading
Shakuntala Devi Trailer! Not a Hagiography, So I Actually Want to Watch This!
Thanks Kirre for posting the trailer in a comment! I probably wouldn’t have watched it otherwise, all the promotional materials up until now have made me not really interested in the film. But the trailer was different and GREAT!Continue reading
Silly Sunday: Sequel to Hrithik-Sanya-Anil Movie, and a Shraddha-Varun Romance to Make Up for Street Dancer 3D
I’m home, I’m eating oreos in my PJs, it’s time to treat myself to writing fanfic. Woo-hoo! Margaret Party Time!Continue reading
Silly Sunday FanFic: BollywoodNewbie and HolyMuffinSallie’s FanFic for Hrithik and Anil and Sanya!
I can only take credit for kind of pulling all of this together, not for the ideas, that is all BollywoodNewbie/Alisa and HolyMuffinSallie. But it is so good, I feel the need to edit it together and expand and put it up on the blog.Continue reading
Friday Classics: Photograph, a Familiar Story Told in an Unfamiliar Way
I am so proud of myself, I watched a non-Indian movie! That is, a movie made in India but in a style totally unlike Indian film. And I understood it! Mostly!Continue reading

Break-Out Actress of 2018
I’ve decided I get to make up my own rules for this category. It’s not an actress whose first movie was this year (although there are some of those), it could also be an actress who had been around for a while but finally got noticed this year. And as always, I will make my nominations just to get the ball rolling, but you can write in your own votes too.Continue reading
Badhai Ho Review (SPOILERS): A Movie About Loving Your Parents as People, Not Just as Parents
What I lovely movie! Just delightful. And no knowledge of the plot can really “spoil” it (although if you definitely don’t want spoilers, you can read my other review). So I am going to encourage you to see it in theaters if at all possible, and if not read this review and plan to catch it streaming or otherwise.
Badhai Ho Review (No Spoilers): A Family Movie in the Truest Sense
What a wonderful movie! It’s just so full of love and goodness and it makes you feel full of love and goodness while you watch it. Takes a silly small premise and turns it into something beautiful.
